Looks nice. Will there be a toy chest version with the roller car?
Reported to be 49cm tall.
oh wait so it isn't just me that was pissed when everyone was crying about the car shells... ugh why did they change it
YESS!!! THANK YOU
But they are toon accurate. Passable imo.
Hell knows. It is toon accurate (chest), and that's the fashion nowadays.
Yep, its been posted on their Weibo, as somebody already wrote.
Write XTB customer service, they're fast to reply. I've done this twice, no problems whatsoever. Never discussed replacement parts directly with Keith.
I'm fine with it.
Even though the black is accurate, I still might add some details to his torso. A darker shade of purple is a must. The shins are fine. It's the carryover from gravestone thigh tapers that are odd. The car shells definitely filled out the arms better and, like gravestone, menasaur has MP-10 proportions. Short legs and a long torso.
So just to share a little insider with you guys
Awesome to see updated pics of Menasor! I think the toy version will look the best with the extra details, chromed sword with purple colored gun (shown previously on box art). I do hope XT paints the weapons for the toon version because all black looks really boring right now. Can't wait to have a MP Menasor sitting on my shelf finally...so close.
Yeah toy look definitely wins. I've found that the toy version of Crackup really fits in well with the old Hasui figures.
Best picture comparison to show the grey needs to be darker, and the purple too
Only real think is I don't like the head sculpt. I think it needs work. Colors too.
Yeah, it's an improvement, but look at the G1 version. Look at Dragstrip. You can see the crazy yellow mismatch still exists. I know it says it's not final, but the red matches fine, the G2 colours match on the arms, but yellow doesn't, nor the purple (in fact, if you look closely you can still see a child's marker attempt where Crackup joins the leg).
Simple point - use the same paint colour as the limb bot. Why would you want to use anything that is mismatched?
Wait, does that mean we're not expecting a chrome sword on the toon version? Has even XTB given in to this ridiculous extreme toon accuracy craze? I'm going to be way more pissed than I should be if his sword isn't chrome. Chrome sword looks like metal meaning it looks like a freaking sword. Metallic paint looks like a damned toy.
I'm also tempted to go with the toy version for Motormaster/Menasor but I still want that toon head for Menasor and I don't even know what the differences for Motormaster will be.
I'd be all for just leaving it grey, elbows as well. Looks fine, and better matches the cartoon.
Yeah, that works too.
I think that because there's a cavity the arm bot clips into, the (understandable) aim is to try and make it look like that's not the case, and the clip parts are actually part of the arm bot instead. But you lose that completely if the colour isn't a 100 per cent match. Deathwish looks good, but it's like they just used the first canary yellow they could find!

I'm sure better pics will come out this weekend and I'll regret taking the time to do this now, but here a rough idea of the improvements id like to see. I changed the whole face. Made it a bit more mean and angular (changed face shape, eyes, nose, and mouth). Then just darkened the grey and adjusted the faces color.
edit:I also forgot to mention I made the circle thing on the top of his head longer lol
Here's hoping no chrome on a toon-based set. Toy based is where chrome belongs.
I have G2 Dragstrip and I am not planning to buy the G1 version (toy/toon), so the yellow paint on the arms of Menasor will clash with the G2 black color
Look at all the glorious, glorious detail on the gestalt's main body. Everything I wanted to see. Both version look good right now and can improve. G1 could use complete white arms so you can switch around the arms. No arms shells look great. Feet have great details as well. Hopefully they have toe articulation.
G2 in beatifull colors as I hoped it would.
Also the forearms have cannons under them. Fantastic!!!
